In this paper the research results of hybrid composite materials made of a steel plate and laminates are presented. The tested composites were made of a metal sheet plate and a laminate plate connected by means of barbed studs. The laminates were made of three different types of fabrics with: fibreglass, carbon fibres and aramid fibres. As a warp, epoxide resin and polyester resin were used.
